Alliance Trust ventures into fixed income

Alliance Trust Asset Management is launching its first bond fund on 15 June.

By Charlotte Banks, Analyst
Thursday May 27, 2010

The Alliance Trust Monthly Income Bond Fund launching on 15 June will invest in a diversified portfolio of predominantly high quality UK corporate bonds.

The expected annualised income yield of 6.3 per cent is payable on a monthly basis. The portfolio is also designed in mind of allowing the managers to protect investors against a rising interest rate environment.

The fund will be co-managed by Gareth Quantrill and Stuart Steven, working closely with Rod Davidson and Stuart McMaster.

Davidson, head of fixed income at Alliance Trust Asset Management, says: “In these tough and volatile market conditions, as experienced by the global markets over the last few years, and in particular these last weeks, investors looking to balance their portfolios would be wise to consider the inclusion of a bond fund that has the ability to protect capital and produce a consistent and attractive level of income."
"We believe that higher rated corporate bonds still offer value, especially given the emergence of the global economy from recession and improving corporate results."
